Why not supplement your voyage with a few once-in-a-lifetime hiking adventures.
Norway, with its amazingly varied terrain, wide-open spaces and interconnected network of trails and cabins, is an Eldorado for hikers and nature lovers.
Regardless of whether you prefer to visit World Heritage sites and iconic attractions, such as the panoramic Pulpit Rock or the world’s strongest maelstrom Saltstraumen, or rather want to discover breathtakingly beautiful villages and remote alpine plateaus, hiking can take you there.
Many of the best outdoor destinations are within easy reach of our ports of call and you will find a wide selection of hiking and exploring excursions suitable for all ages and levels of mobility.
When we visit the west coast and Fjord Norway, why not visit the picturesque village of Balestrand for the hike to Keipen with its spectacular views over Sognefjord, mountains and the ocean. National Geographic Traveler magazine called this area “the world’s most iconic destination”.
On our visits to the Lofoten archipelago, stop at the most beautiful village in Norway, Reine for a trek up to the breathtaking seascapes from Reinebringen mountain or hike along a seascape of little fishing villages stacked up one after the other like a string of pearls. If you want to follow in the footsteps of Norway’s Queen Sonja, our stop at Sandnessjøen brings you close to her favorite hiking destination, the craggy peaks of the Seven Sisters mountain range.
Inland from Bergen or Haugesund, you can wander for days across the alpine plateau of the Hardangervidda National Park. With nearly 30 public cabins and endless trails to hike, it’s home to a large herd of wild reindeer and close to the Folgefonna glacier.
If you travel through the city of Stavanger or do our stopover in the village of Lysebotn, don’t miss the hike up to Pulpit Rock, one of the world’s truly breath-taking viewpoints. From this panorama point, at 604 meters, you look down on the magnificent Lysefjord, with its vagabond’s cave, ancient farms, waterfalls, idyllic islands and majestic landscape.
